How did they decide what carriers to remove?

Did they say anywhere how they picked carriers to remove and will they add more to fill in the tiers later? I wanted the Independence and Essex but now they aren't available. TBH if they will never come back I might just stop playing carriers. (I don't play WOWS that often so sometimes I miss a lot of news)

They only have odd tiered now.  They moved the Ranger to 6 (I think), and the premiums to 8.  That removed the Independence at 6.

The have stated they want to bring the other carriers back, either in the odd tiers or as another line.

They showed a screenshot of what the trees will look like later: the US second CV line will be Bogue-Independence-Yorktown-Essex.

Looking at the IJN line, it's pretty easy, start at tier 10, and keep every other carrier going down.

The US Navy CV line is where it gets interesting, Midway stayed at tier 10, Lexington at 8, which makes sense. Ranger, historically is closer to Ryujo (being an odd perwar carrier) than Hiryu. Independence is a wartime CVL, and in real life was at least as capable as Ranger.  If Wargaming actually goes though with bringing most of the removed CV's back as separate lines (which I seriously doubt with how bad it has been received, I actually doubt we'll see Royal Navy CV) Ranger and Independence will be equal. Yorktown will be at tier 8 with Lexington,  the big pre-war US Navy CV's were pretty much interchangeable. Essex isn't nearly the equal of a Midway, but nothing's gonna work perfect.

Putting the second IJN line in is a little more problematic. Zuiho and Ryujo aren't that similar in capabilities. Zuiho is a small CVL, Ryujo is a tiny fleet carrier. Shokaku is basically an improved Hiryu in every way. Hakuryu is Taiho scaled up to the size of a Midway

They said they want a second "alternative" tree that will also be 6, 8, & 10

The used a pair of 21 sided dice with only the numbers 5, 7, and 9 on them and it worked exactly as they predicted.

There were multiple updates on CVs before the launch how did you miss them all?

Last time I played a lot and checked the news was the last(?) t10 ranked season.

Just go to the WoWs game page from forums and you'll find several updates on the CVs that were put out in the last week or so.
